There are, of course, times when the consensus view and the truth align perfectly. The problem is how to determine when this is the case. This diversity of thought and action is what Wikipedia has tried to establish in building its vast and ever-expanding knowledge base. By letting anyone contribute, regardless of his or her credentials, it runs the risk that absurdities, inconsistencies, and misinformation will flourish. H. B. Phillips, the former head of MIT mathematics department, reveals that when there is considerable difference of opinion, there is no evidence that the intellectuals supply any better answers than ordinary people.y any better answers than ordinary people.
